Nutty, Nutty, Nutty for you!
This was one of the recipe that I learned when I participated in one of ABC Cooking Studio's demo classes ( pay 500yen and they'll teach you how to make 2 recipes) a couple of years back. I totally forgot about this recipe until I stumbled across an old notebook where I use to write a couple of recipes and some cooking tips from some tv shows.
The process is pretty much like making a cinnamon roll, but instead of sprinkling cinnamon sugar , you add a little instant coffee to it. The nuts give an extra yum-yum to the bread, and with the glaze on top, this roll is just delicious.
160 g bread flour
1 1/2 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp milk powder
1 egg yolk
40 g butter
50-60cc warm water
Filling and Topping:
1 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp intsant coffe ( or Nescafe )
1 tsp cinnamon
Crush nuts ( almond, pecan, walnuts etc )
3 tbsp icing sugar
1 tsp instant cofee
1 1/2 tsp water
How to make:
1. Place 1/2 of flour ( 80g), dry yeast, sugar, milk powder, eggyolks & egg, and lastly add in the warm water. Mix until just combined and wrap bowl with cling wrap and leave it for 10 minutes.
2. Add in the remaining flour, salt and butter and knead until dough is soft and smooth. ( note: dough is slightly sticky during the first stage of kneading ) Leave to proof for 30-40minutes or until doubled in size.
3. Punch out gas and roll dough to form a nice even square. Mix sugar, coffee and cinnamon powder and sprinkle over rolled dough. Roll dough upwards and cut into 6 equal portions.
4. Place in a muffin cup and using a thin wooden stick, make a mark in a middle of the dough, cover with cling wrap and leave to proof the second time for 20-30 minutes.
5. Glaze buns with remaining egg used as an egg wash, sprinkle with crushed nuts and bake in a well-preheated oven of 180deg for 20minutes.
6. Take out buns from the oven, leave to cool. Meanwhile, mix icing sugar, coffee and water and drizzle over cooled buns. Serve warm.
Though making these rolls aren't as easy as making a sweet bun, or dinner rolls, believe me, the end results is worth all the effort
To those who would like to challenge themselves to make a much more presentable bread, you can definitely try this one. The look is pretty and the taste is yummy
And now, back to my books
